Benefits of a GSA Schedule

Benefits of Getting On a GSA Schedule

Direct Access to the World’s Largest Customer

A GSA Schedule contract allows direct access to the U.S. federal government, the largest buyer of goods and services in the world. If selling technology or security solutions, GSA Schedule contractors can sell to state and local government entities as well as public schools.

Access to GSA Schedule Opportunities

Government agencies often post opportunities that are only available to GSA Schedule contractors with faster award times.

Competitive Advantages

Government agencies often prefer to buy from the GSA Schedule program because the contractors are pre-vetted and are offering the best value. GSA Schedule orders under FAR 8.4 are issued using full and open competition and hold significant advantages over the acquisition of commercial items.

Long-term Partnership

GSA Schedule contracts can last up to 20 years and there is no ceiling on sales (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity).

Streamlined Procurement Process

The GSA Schedule program simplifies the procurement process for both the government buyer and the contractor. A GSA Schedule contract is a pre-competed Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) with “fair and reasonable pricing” and can be used by any federal entity. An order placed against a GSA Schedule contract represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost.
